One Way We Survive on a Teacher’s Salary is by Staying Healthy!

Since our whole family is sick this weekend it seemed fitting to mention that one very critical way we survive on our budget is by staying healthy! A bit of an oxymoron at the moment!! But seriously – it is worth spending the extra money for preventative care (such as vitamins, disinfectants, etc) than it is to get sick. Our health insurance is rather lousy – so we try very hard to give the kids probiotics when their tummies are sick, we make sure they wash their hands properly, and we wipe down doorknobs and handles – especially when someone is sick. A little bit of health prevention can go a long way!
Soon I will be announcing a healthy campaign that I have joined with for the next two months along with a few other bloggers. I feel strongly about trying to keep in good health – whether it’s exercising, eating right, taking vitamins, etc. You’d be surprised what kids will take – my kids LOVE fish oil believe it or not! They beg for it every day and my little guy actually cries when he runs out. Odd – I know! 
With the beginning of the school year comes a LOT of new germs for both kids and teachers. Here are a few simple tips to help keep you and your kids healthy:
Wash your Hands – A LOT!
Stay away from sick people – easier to say than do sometimes.
Take vitamins – even if it’s just a multivitamin – kids and adults!
Eat healthy! Your body will thank you for it!
Exercise Daily.
Get good sleep at night.
Relax – plan some fun in your day to relieve stress!
If you do get sick – don’t try and wait until the last minute when you’re so sick you can’t move (which is usually what I do!!). It will only prolong your recovery time if you wait too long.
